  • PB article

    Hey guys & gals ... I found a copy of the Performance Bikes article about the TLR ... June 2003 Pg 42. an someone scan it (I can't)?

    "The original TLR could never even think of challenging bikes like the Ducati 998 or the new 999 ..." " ... instead, it feels like a rival to machines like the Honda SP-2 or Aprilia Mille-R" ... this is a quote regarding this very modified TLR ...

    Check it out ...

    That makes no sense to me, the Mille R is every bit is much a superbike as the Ducati, at least to me

        PB is speaking of the modified TLR that they tested in this article ... (QB Carbons ex-demo bike ... Marvic Penta 2 magnesium-alloy wheels, custom exhaust fabricated by JHP, carbon air-box, Ohlins shock ... etc.)

                  Email it to me if it's too big to attach and you have no where to host it. Nothing better than a TL bashing read.

                        something doesnt add up 40-50K. (pounds)

                        for a tlr, with carbon fairings, pc2, airbox, undertail, and exhaust, plus some polishing, rear sets, rotors, lines and calipers... there is some pritty exotic stuff there up 50K..

                        50,000 pounds I think they saw this guy comming.

                        Tiller2nv tlr was more impressive that that tlr

                          I take no liability if someone burns up his/her TL with Jarkko/Sparkko/plus mod It's safe if it's done right....

                            That is QB carbons development bike and in the price they are figuring development costs. Also some thing doesnt add up in the tire department.
